Wrist Worn Bite Counter Keeps Track Of Every Forkful جهاز يعد عدد اللقيمات التي تتناولها


A psychology professor and an electrical and computer engineering professor at Clemson University in South Carolina have teamed up to develop a watch-like device that tracks wrist-roll motion to count how many bites the wearer takes.

In the lab, they report, their Bite Counter has been more than 90 percent accurate in tallying bites regardless of the food, utensil, container, or user.

They say the device, which can be turned on and off at will, is something of a pedometer for eating. It’s certainly not tracking types of food. But even if it’s intended to monitor mere quantity of consumption, it can only be so accurate.
